Spotify

Get to know Spotify

The first step is to sign up for a Spotify account. You can go the free route where you can enjoy your favorite songs, playlists, and albums with occasional ads in between. Or, you can subscribe early on for Premium, which enables you to play higher-quality songs on-demand, listen offline, and enjoy an ad-free experience—which is what we’ll look at in this review.

Spotify’s design and interface is consistent whether you’re listening through the web player or the desktop app. The Browse section is a good place to start fresh where you can check out curated playlists, global and national charts, genres and moods, and new releases. After two weeks of use, Spotify releases a new playlist called Discover Weekly for your week-by-week recommendations. The selections are based on your listening history and that of other Spotify users with similar tastes, so the longer you use Spotify, the more accurate the recommendations. You’ll get to listen a new batch of songs every Monday.

Playing a song brings up the music player, which gives you control over volume, playback, and the play queue. On the web app, the player appears on the right hand side of the screen with a list of related music at the bottom. On the desktop app, the player appears at the bottom of the screen to make room for the friend feed. When enabled, the friend feed lets you know if a friend is online and what they’re currently listening to—something only currently available in Spotify’s mobile and desktop apps.

Your saved songs and playlists are displayed under the Your Music section of the app. Here, you can listen to saved songs and create and manage your playlists. You can add a playlist to the play queue, rename it, make it public, share its Spotify link, or turn it into a radio station for people to tune in. What’s great about these features is how music can become a shared social experience where people of similar tastes can enjoy and share their favorite songs all over the world.

Spotify Radio is another feature that allows you to select and listen to music you love. Rather than listening to multitudes of songs from different albums and artists, you can choose to listen songs from a single artist, genre, or from Spotify’s list of recommended stations. The best part is being able to add your own unique touch by personalizing your radio stations. Just give a track a thumbs up and the station improves its selection based on your feedback.

Spotify is an intelligent music player where your listening choices influence its ability to recommend the best songs for you, helping you listen to your favorite songs and discover the things you’ll fall in love with next. And with its built-in social features, you can easily share your discoveries and favorites with family, friends, and fellow music lovers around the world.
